The Eighth Triennial (Cen- 
tennial) Reunion of the 
Kentucky Association of 
the Deaf held in DanTille, 
Kentucky, August 31st, 
September 1st, 2cl, and 3d. 


AooordlDS to Webster : Rannlon— " A

This mnch can be nnid of tlie 
Eighth Trienninl (Centennial) Re- 
union of the Kentuclj.v Association 
of the Deaf, held at Danviile, Ky , 
Aagnat 31st to Septeml)er 3d, in- 

The Danville local committee 
had arranged a splendid and at- 
tarctive program, which went 
through hi clock work style 
Events incident thereto conspired 
kaleidoscopally to make it the 
BEST ever. 

All previous attendance records 
were shattered — the registration 
book showing some 317 souls pre- 
sent— 270 deaf and 47 hearing. 
But for a centennial reunion from 
the view point of most of the Dan- 
ville alnmnt, it was a bit disappoint- 
ing showing. 

The writer was honored with a 
plsoe on the Press Committee, and 
knowing what is expected of ns, we 
have undertaken the task of writing 
up the proceedings, bnt what we 
have to say must not be taken as 
offlotal, bat as the "personal ob- 
servations and reflections of one who 
was present." 

The oldest "pupil" in atten- 
dance was Mrs. Antiio B, Smith, of 
Taylorsville, Ky., who entered 
school in 1856. We counted some 
thirty-six automobiles of all makes 
In the yard of the Kentucky School 
for the Deaf, the oflBciai hoadquar 
ter of the association. Most of them 
osme from all points in Kentucky, 
while a few came from otiier States. 
If that number is to be taken as a 
criterion, then the deaf of Ken 
tuoky, who own and drive auto- 
mobiles are not only careful and 
sane, but prosperous as well, and 
stand by their rights as tax payers 
The writer is at a loss to under- 
stand why legislation is contemplat- 
ed that would bar deaf drivers of 
oars in this State. We will have 
more to say on this later. 

The Reun'on was formally open- 
ed at 2:30 P.M., Friday, AuKii8t3l«t, 
with G. McClure in tlio cluiir. Prof. 
Madison Lee ao'ed as offloiul inter- 
preter one way or the other, and 
made a very favoratde impression. 

The invocation was offered l>y the 
Rev. Francis J. Cheek. 

Miss IleliHiJWood, of Louisville, 
gracefully ren<'ered " Anicriea." 

The address of weloomooii Itehalf 
of the Hoard of Commissioneis was 
delivered by the Hon. P. M. Mc- 
Rol)orta, a member of the Board 
tie dwelt at length on the theme 
that the school was very fortunate 
in not l)eing under political in 

The address of welcome on behalf 
of the School was delivered by Dr. 
Augustus Rogprs. 

"Welcome?" inetapliorized the 
good Doctor, " Why, yon all are 
as welcome as the sun after tlie rain, 
nay, as welcome as the lips of a 
blushing bride are to the lips of a 
new bridegroom." 

The response was made by Prof. 
Alva Long, of the Nortli Dakota 
School for the [)<)af, at Devil's Lake. 
Prot. Long, by the way is a gra- 
duate of dear old K. S. R., and has 
given a |ood account of himself. 

The President's address was 
delivered by Mr. Q, M. MoClnro. 
He spoke of the possibility of 
legislation to prevent the d oaf of 
the State from owning or driving 
oars and strongly urged the ap- 
pointment of a " Welfare Com- 
mittee" to keep an eye on road and 
trafQo regulations ooinlog up at the 
approacliing seasion of the General 
Assembly at Frankfort. Ife also 
urged greater oo-operation and I 
" stlok-tOKSthernen" among the| 

deaf, where adverse legislation 
wonid hit their welfare, to unite 
and fight against it. 

The Secretary read several letters 
of greetings (and of regrets too) ; 
after which the President appointed 
the personnel of various commit- 
tees, after which the meeting ad- 

Friday afternoon, from 4:30 P.M., 
on, "Rotund Jawn" Mueller, or- of the N. F. S. D. in Ken- 
tucky, was masters of ceremonies. 
Having the two colonels, Fosdick 
and McClure, brought before him, 
in the presence of some 100 or more 
"frats," he proceeded to swear them 
in as Hooial members of No. 4, and 
presented them with emt)lem but- 
tons and red "frat" hats. But the 
Rotund one did not stop here, he 
went still further on, leading a 
parade of all "frats" present through 
the principal streets of the town, 
through the newspaper offices and 
through the Now Gilchev Hotel. 

Friday night, as per usuhI at all 
Reunions, Dr. and Mrs, Rogers had 
a reception in the school parlors. 

Saturday morning from 8:30 to 
9:45, the guest attended a showing 
of the National Association of the 
Deaf films at the Stout's Opera 
House. It was a rate treat to soe 
Dr. Gallandot, Dr. Fox, Dr. 
Draper, Or. Hotohkiss, etc. Mac 
Qregor, that Irishman! Too bad 
his flea story was cut short, and 
Wm. K. Marshall, in Yankee 
Doodle. It will be long before we 
forget them. 

Saturday morning from 9:30 until 
almost dinner time, tliere was a 
" Field Day" on the School track, 
in charge of Messrs. Payne and 
Martin and Miss Woolslayer. Va-

At 2 P.M., the group photograph 
of I lie Reunion was taken on the 
school lawn. There was many a 
wild scramble for seats of vantage. 

At 4 P.M., there was a busotiail 
game between the Louisville and 
Cincinnati l)oys, or ratlter Ohioan<i 
Kentucky boys, which resulted in a 
victoiy for which team, we are not 
informed, by a score of 12 to 11, 
with William E. (" Dummy") Hoy 
replacing one of the outflhlers on 
the losing team too late. Here we 
can not go into details because the 
offloial scorer, John T. Q. Carver, 
of Akron, good as he is at it, is ho 
careless he lost the score of the 

Mr, and Mrs. McClure had an in- 
formal reception at llioir home from 
4:.30to 5:30 P.M., to whioli they in- 
vited the elite of their former 

It was "Stunt Night" In the 
School ohapel from 7:30 to 9 p.m., in 
which former pupils and graduates 

" camo back" to Literary Society 
days. The features were Orient- 
al dances l>y Miss Woolslayer; a 
train story by Mr, Boetz and the 
Kannapell-LuFountaiu dondle team 
of single talking. 

The Danville alumni held a 
reception for former pupils, gra- 
duates and visitors in the School 
parlors after the " stunt" were over, 
dancing was indulged in until the 
wee sma' hours of the morning. 

Sunday morning, the Rev. 
Francis J, Cheek held divine reli- 
gious service in the chapel. 

Sunday afternoon, auto trips to 
Dix River, High Bridge, etc., were 
tlio order of the day, 

Sunday nigtit, memorial services 
in respect to departed officers of K. 
S. D. were held in the school cha- 
pel, where former pupil brought 
forth the fact that this or that of 
(leer was so old fashioned, it was 
answered hotly with the fact that 
while it may be true, but the scale 
of good deecis overshadow mistakes 
honestly made in the discharge of 

And now we are arriving at the 
most important meeting of the Re- 
union. Monday morning, Sep- 
tember 3d, 9:30 P.M., the Secre- 
tary reads the roll call of members, 
and reports of committees are 
read. (Wo regret exceedingly we 
were not furnished with copies of 

" Louisville 1926" is put in 
nomination for the next meeting 

Danville (the home of K. S. D.) 
is put up too. 

Much pro and con arguing and a 
vote is ordered taken, and "Louis 
Tille 1920" loses. Let it be under 
stood we are game losers. 

Then came the election of officers, 
which resulted as follows : Presi- 
dent, Patrick Dolan, Louisville; 
First Vice-President, Gordon Kan- 
napell, Louisville; Second Vice 
President, Kdgsr Hay, Covington; 
Third Vice-President, Rodney W. 
Broaddus, Lexington; Correspond- 
ing Secretary, Chas. P, Fosdick, 
D.tnville; Recording Secretary, 
Max N, MaiooHson, Diiuviile;

ville were relected, while Messrs.

liostowod upon him and we know he 
will "make good" with a venegance. 

The Reunion closed with the

Running true to past form, I^ouis- 
villo and Cincinnati turned oat 
largo delegatioris. Much was ex- 
pected of Akron, the rubber city, 
bnt it fell down miserably, only two 
l)eiiig present. 

All conversation invariably start- 
ed with " What is your name?" or 
" Do you remember?" interposed 
with " Where do you get that sluflf? 
I ain't a pupil. I'm a visitor," and 
ended witli " I'll see you at the 
next Reunion." 

Many a devoted husband and 
wife were «eparted at the Reunion 
— each sailed forth to hunt up their 
old beds in the respective dormi- 
tories and to put up with all in- 
oonveuienooM just for the sake of 
auld lang syne. 

Almost ail of the young ones 
brought along their oaineraa or 
kodaks. Tlie photographic supply 
houses did a land office business in 
the film line 

Quite a few who attended their 
first Reunion in decades, noted a 
groat change had come over the 

town. For instance, the new post 
office, Centre's new stadium, the 
asphalt streets, two daily news- 
papers, a new modern hotel, several 
" movie" palaces, a motorized fire 
department, better police protection, 
snd last, but not least, dear ohi 
K. S. D, as usual, goes on as usual. 

Auto trips to Shakertown Inn, 
Dix River, High Bridge, Stanford, 
Lancaster and other points of in- 
terest adjacent to Danville relieved 
the montony of several idle hours 
when nothing was on the program. 

Hon. Chas, P, Fosdick turned 
the school library into an art 
gallery; the book cases were lined 
with photographs of deaf persons, 
past and present and hearing chil- 
dren of deaf parents. It was a 
great pleasure to see ourselves as 
we were years ago. 

Red " frat" hats wer vere very 
much In evidence. We counted 
the following divison . numbers: 1, 
3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 18, 20, 21, 46, 60 
and 55. Some representation 1 
Watch for the group photograph in 
the Frat and Silent JFbr&«r later. 

Prominent out of State visitors 
at the Reunion were William E. 
(" Dummy") Hoy, former star 
major league outfields, of Cincin- 
nati; Prof. Alva Long, of the NorHh 
Dakota School for the Deaf; Prof, 
Jacob Showaller, of the Ohio School 
for the Deaf; Adolph Brizius, Sr., 
of Evansville, Ind.; Messrs. Warren 
and Olgive, of Nashville, Tenn., 
and a few others whose names have 
slipped our memory. 

Mr. W. Hickman Carter, busi- 
ness manager of Centre College and 
until school closed last June, one of 
the faculty of K. S, D., mingled 
freely among his old pnpils, "Al- 
though I have severed connection 
with dear old K. S, D,, I will 
always have a warm s^rat for ber in 
my heart" as he says, 

" Uncle" Pat Dolan may Ite the 
new President of the Kentucky As- 
sociation of the Deaf, bnt it has not 
swelled his pride one iota — he's still 
the sarue old Pat as of old. The 
older he gets, the more honors come 
his way and the plainer ho becomes 
Good old Pat, wer'e strong for you, 

John Werner, of Louisville, had 
the largest following of any one pre- 
sent. Seats at the table John 
occupied were at a premium — 
many a wild scramble was there 
among the youngsters for even 
standing room. On the school lawn, 
John was the center of attraction of 
a large crowd. 

Going to Danville with the grin 
determination of rnaking "Louisville 
1926" materialise, but failing at it, 
"Rotund Jawn" Mueller did the 
next best thing. He brought home 
the t)ucon in the shape of fourteen 
new applications for membership4n 
No, 4, 

Some people can not know a good 
thing when they see it, even if it is 
brought before them on a silver 
platter. For instance, "Louisville 
1926 "was voted down. We, the 
deaf of Louisville, have no sore 
spots over it — we fully understand 
and realize the advantages ami dis- 
advantages of holding conventions 
or reunions hero. Nuf -ed ! 

We liave an idea that when the 
reunion di.ibanded, the Superinten- 
dent ordered the rooms and yards 
cleaned up, and imagine the number 
of cigar butts in the pile, and they 
were all 

"Certified Bond's."

The Gorman Relief Committee 
in New York recently sent us two 
boxes of clothing aud the amount of 
$22 for the suffering deaf *mute8 of 
Greater Berlin. 

In the name of tlie local ruutes, I 
herewith desire to express my hear- 
felt thanks and gratitude to our 
American friends for the kindness 
and aid to their unfortunate bro- 
thers and sisters in Germany. 
Giatefully yours,

with the wind than a little sorub 

Misses Ceolia Bell and Nora 
DuUinger, of this community, have 
returned to their studies at Edge- 
wood Park for the coming winter. 

"Big Jim" Princler was urged to 
go back to a local bakery at more 
wages, which he accepted, than he 
got last months when he quit work. 
It is cause for gladness that his 
boss has always valued him mnch 
more than any other employee in 
his bakery. Well, it is our firm 
belief that the same position, is the 
best occupation forsiients. 

Mr. and Mrs, James G. Poole, of 
Hunker, have returned from the 
Quakes City after spending a day 
or so as the guests of Mr. and Mrs, 
James Reider in that city. They 
report having had a great time at 
the reunion of graduates and 
former students of Mt, Airy School. 
Ye local made a liitle jaunt down 
to see the Pooles one afternoon last 
week. We chatted delightfully 
together in reference to the happen- 
ing of the silent reunionist« at that 
school, and would ever remember 
the fine time they had enjoyed 

Harry Fox, Roy Nordstrom and 
Jim Princler have returned from a 
most eventful motorcycle trip to 
Philadelphia, Atlantic City and 
Wiiimington, Del. They declare 
that they undoubtedly had quite an 
enjoyable time dipping in the surf 
at Atlantic City and also meeting 
a lot of silent Pittaburghers. They 
motored to Baltimore, where they 
spent a brief time sight-seeine, and 
afterwards left for Hagerstown, 
Md., where they remained till the 
following morning when they started 
homeward, passing Qettsburg, 
Cumberland, Uniontown, Connells- 
ville and Mt. Pleasant. At 
length they arrived home in safety. 
Did the Philadelphia scribe keep 
an open eye on our celebrated 
tourists with wonderment ? 

The Fhiladephia writer is right 
because he said that " Rex" had 
written something wrong concern- 
ing that "Sleepy Philadelphia," 
The latter was truly surprised at 
the great growth and remarkable 
improvement of that city that had 
taken place since he left there more 
than twenty-one years ago. Well, 
for Mr. Reiders' sake we shall" 
never call his city " sleepy and 
slow" again. Well, then, let 
us both be calm and peaceful for- 

We attended the doings of the 
reunion with a great deal of interest, 
and mot many of our former school- 
mutes in a most joyful manner again 
after a length absence. However, 
the passing of several of our old 
classmates caused as to think sadly 
that tliey were with us on earth no 
more. Well, it set us to thinking 
interestingly ot our school days wo 
spent at old Broad and Pine Streets 
School. We visited the laun- 
dry of the Mt, Airy School in the 
morning and were more than delight- 
ed to meet our old classmates, Mr. 
William Lee again, who works 
there. We found him the same 
jolly good fellow he used to be, 
when we were at school together. 
Wo remember that he was the most 
comical pantomimist the old school 
ever produced. Mr. Lee has been 
employed in the laundry for a 
period of forty-three years, or since 
he left school. He thinks that he 
will some day he returned on pen- 
sion. The school buildings are 
structures of modern architecture on 
an eminence, commanding a l)eanti 
ful view of Philadephia and many 
aristocratic suburl>s. Of course, 
your 8cril>e occupied Room No. 49 
on the secouti fioor of one of the 
Mt. Airy School buildings, and 
found it mote comfortable and 
homelike, enjoying a nice sight of 
lovely lawns, trees, baseball grounds 
asphalt walks, etc. It was indeed 
a great delight to see and shake 
hands with Dr. Cr outer, Superin 
tendent of the school buildings. No 
wonder he had a great time meeting 
and chatting with many of bis old 
friends by means of the mannal 
alphabet and signs freeely, dnrini: 
the P. S. A. D. Convention aud P. 
A, A. reunion. He looks Jike a 
man of 50, and is a gentleman of 
fine personality, notwithstanding 
his advanced age We hope that 
he may be spared for many years to 

Your scribbler gladly mot his old 
friends, Mr. and Mrs. K. N. Steven- 

sen, of Brooklyn, N. Y,, at the re- 
union. We had been along together 
since we got to the reunion. In the 
afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson, 
accompanied by Miss Susan Mc 
Kinney, John Detweiler and his old 
classmate and yoor reporter, visited 
with Mrs, Stevenson's old sister, 
who for a period of seventeen years 
has been confined to her home. The 
sister has Iwrne her sufferings with 
Christian fortitude and cheerfulness 
during all these years. We then 
left her bidding her good by. 

Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson, their 
nephew and nleje and your scrib- 
bler motored to Doylestown, Sun- 
day afternoon, September 2d, where 
we inspected the Home for Infirm 
and Aged Deaf people. We also 
met several old people and talked 
with them for a short time. Thea 
we went to the Inn in that city, 
where we had supper in excellent 
fashion. Afterwards we motored 
back to the "City of Brotherly 
Love," passing Willow Grove and 
observing great crowds at the park. 
We reached the Mt. Airy School 
at>oat 8 o'clock P. if., and had the 
best times of our liyes. 

The next morning we called on 
Mrs, Wm. Lee at her home and 
cheered her up, who has been con- 
fined to the house for a long time. 
Then we went to the homy of Mr. 
Robert Ziegler, where we called on 
his wife, who has been confined 
thereto for quite a while. She seem- 
ed delighted to see her callers, and 
talked tons entertainingly, appear 
ing to forget all her 

George Finley, an attache of the 
Edgewood School, was in town on 
his way back home from Union- 
town recently. 

An uneducated Italian mute, 
whose name we can not learn, is 
often seen in this city. We under- 
stand that he works in the garden 
of a wealthy gentleman, north of 
town. He is truly onknown to as.

Bidding her adien, and with 
hope that she might soon recover her 
usual health, we went back to the 
school building for dinner. After 
dinner Mr, Charles A, Chathams, 
of Alloona, and the writer said 
farewell to their dear friends, leav- 
ing in the afieruooa for their west- 
ern home. No doubt we enjoyed 
the pleasures of the reunion, and

William Stewart, of Pittsburg, 
was the guest of James Princler, 
of 118 Washington Street, over 
night, leaving for home by motor, 
where he has a position in a print- 
ing establishment. He is quite 
popular in that city on account of 
his wits. Well, come and see ns 

William Weaver, of Phila- 
delphia, whom we met with the ut- 
most delight as a former schoolmate 
of old Broad and Pine Streets 
School at the reunion. He was 
popularly called as "Potatoes" 
while he was a pupil there. He ap- 
prised us that he could not help 
thinking of the great trouble he 
had with these mischevious iwys, 
and alNO that he was greatly sur- 
prised to see how greatly the writer 
looked changed since lus left the old 
school. Among those ex-Gal- 
laudetists, who participated in the 
great reunion were: Messrs. El well, 
Ziegler, Grim, Lipsett, Spahr, Mc 
Ilvane, Holliday, Stevenson and 
others, whose names we could not 

"Rex" spent a jolly evening last 
week with his general friend, 
Harry O. Fox, at his beautiful 
brick residence in Southwest 
Greeusburg. Of course, Jim Prin- 
cler and Roy Nordstrom were there, 
who made merry throughout the 
night. "Big Jim," again gave ns 
an amusing story, which we will 
inform ye readers through these 
columns, namely: — 

Lately in the sma' hours of the 
night on his way home along 
Spring Street Jim saw a local 
policeman, (who suspected him to 
be a member of the robbery gang), 
running after him at a speedy rale 
and accusing him of being charged 
with robbery. Jim made gestures, 
"I am a deaf-mute." Feeling 
cheap, the policeman hurried away. 
Jim gave him a good laugh, and 
then went on to his home. It is 
admitted that he is a tall fellow of 
strength and fearlessness. 

Mr. and Mrs. Fred Haley, of 
Jeannette, and Mrs. P. T, Qiitens 
and children, of South Greeusburg, 
attended the annual-outing of the 
Keystone Coal Company's em- 
ployees at beantifnl Oakford Park, 
Saturday, 8th. They said that they 
had a good time.

Tbe Sixth Reunion of Ibe Alumni 
Association of tbe Pennsylvania 
Institution for the Deaf and the 
thirty seventh meeting of the Penn- 
sylvania Society of tbe Advance- 
ment of tbe Deaf began simultan- 
eously at a joint meeting in the 
chapel of Wissinoming Hall, Mt, 
Airy, on Thursday eveuing, Au- 
gust 30th, ig23. 

The chapel was filled to overflow- 
ing by Ihe members of both associa- 
tions, many of whom also belonged 
to both organizations, at this ses- 
sion, which was presided over 
by Mr. D EUis Lit President 
of the Alumni Asadciation and 
Chairman of the Committee on 
Arrangements of the P. S. A. D. 
The address of welcome was 
delivered by Dr. A, L. E. 
Crouter, Superintendent of the In- 
stitution, and was as follows : — 

Afetnbers of the OmvenlUm ; Ladies 
and Gentlemen : — It is with pleasure ( 
welcome yoa on this occasion, and I trust 
yotir meeting may prove pleasarable and 
profitable in every way. 

It is with extreme regret that tbe Presi- 
dent of our Board of Dlfectors, A. B. 
Monti{oniery, Rsq , who for so many years 
has been wont to extend the hospitalities 
of the Xnstitntion to your or((anizations, is 
unable, owinf; to sericms illness, to greet 
jroo toiday. Yon may be sure however he 
(s present with yon in spirit and that from 
his bed of sickneas he prays for your 
happiaeas and prosneritv. Mr. Kmlen

sor as President of th' //bom maijy 

of you will recall as otic gr&atiy interested 
ia jorxi welfare, is also prevented by phy- 
sical infirmities from meeting yon. Both 
of these gentlemen send cordial greetings. 

I am also permittetl by the Board of 
Directors, as a txyly (^ officials greatly in- 
terested in ''^•' ""-1fare of the deaf of the 
State, and rmbers ot the Ladies' 

Committee mue 10 interest them- 

selves in yonr prosperity, to extend most

and of the tmfWta' Committee arc still in-

have me' V 

acity a! ,im a very at^proach- 

eble gr. ready to aid and ad- 

vise you at all tiiiies to the best of bis know- 
ledge and ability. 

Mr. Chambers as Field OfBcer has visit- 
ed every county ivtbe eastern and central 

perta of the State and has beenir' 1- 

al in directing many nneducati- 

to tbe school. He is anthori/^. .b 

<»padty to visit all parts of the .Sute 
where former and present papiln of the 
school are known to dwell, an'^ r 

aid to gather together tinin^r ./ 

feel gratified. Your efforts to encourage 
physical training in the school are ap- 

The methods of instruction now pursued 
have undergone no perceptible change 
since we were last met together. For pur- 
poses of instruction oral methods, which 
include writing and the printed word are 
pursed in all the classes. As evidenced by 
the success of our graduates in all walks of 
life, such metho<ls carefully, sympatbe- 
ticallv and industriously carried out furnish 
abundant proofs of the wiiwlom of the 
Board in inititnting them and of 
the wisdom of the State in insisting 
on their adoption. The full course 
includes all English branches ; our 
graduates find re^y admission to Gallau- 
det College and to the many high schools 
of the State. Yon interest in providing an 
Annual Prize for the best work in 
is most helpful. 

Industrial training and trade teaching 
continue, as in years past, to receive care- 
ful attention at the hands of competent in- 
structors. The graduates of the school find 
no difficulty in securing lucrative i)osttion8 
throughout the city and State. I frequent- 
ly receive lettlers from parents expressing 
grateful appreciation of the work of the 
school in this connection. A trade, well 
acquired, is a sure means of securing a 
good livelihood and I would urge all pupils 
to remain under instruction long enough 
to secure one. 

The deaf-blind committed to our care 
continue to receive expert instruction; it is 
expected that two of them will graduate in 
regular course at the close of the incoming 
school year. 

Religious instruction is imparted to all 
of our pupils, Protestant, Catholic, and 
Hebrew alike; the former at the hands of 
our own teachers, the latter at the hands 
of teachers of their own faith. 

The attendance of pupils for several 
years past has ranged from 535 to 545 
pupils, 505 of whom have been main- 
tained by the State at much less than Cf>st. 
ft is probable that this attendance will 
have to be considerably reduced for the 
next two ^ears, owing to great reduced 
appropriations. For some years past we 
have received about $400 per pupil for the 
maintenance of all State pupils, but for the 
next two years this amount will l>e reduced 
to abeut 1360 per pupil. You will realize 
the necessity of reducing our expenses to 
the lowest possible point in consequence. 
This condition is greatly to be regretted, it 
will hamper our work to a considerable 

"The Home for the Aged and Infirm Deaf 
at Doylestown I am glad to be able to state 
is in excellent condition. You will have 
opportunity to visit it before returning- to 
yonr several homes. As in the past, I 
bespeak for it your active support. 

In conclusion let me in pehalf of the 
school appeal for continued geneious and 
kindly snpjxjrt at your hands. Uphold us 
in our work. Extend your sympathies in 
our efforts to build up aud maintain a 
school you will delight to honor. We 
need your assisUnce, both in mainUining 
tbe Home and the school along all 
progressive lines; and whether or no I may 
l)e sparefl to greet yon on the occassion of 
your next meeting, believe me I shall ever 
pray a gracious Providence to guide and 
keep you In all good ways. 

The response for both Associations 
was madf by Mr, James F. Brady in 
his usual felicitious vien. 

Mr. Lyman Steed, Principal df 
the Academic Department of the 
Institution, also gave an address, 
the gist of which we are unable to

these few to get for us what we want, but 
we give them very little help, which is not 
the right spirit of co-operation. May we 
hope that every one in this room will go 
out and work jointly with the officers in 
making Pennsylvania a still better place 
for the deaf to live in. 

Many organizations of the deaf have 
sprung up of late years. It would be re- 
grettable if we allow tliem to have a deter- 
rent effect on this organization which has 
been so instructuienlal in adding to our 
happiness and well-being and lias a ch iri- 
table object in view — that of putting the 
Home for the aged and infirm of our people 
on a self-supporting basis. In truth, it 
would mean a calamity. And no one can 
deny that this Society is an absolute neces- 
sity if our rights in the State are to be pro- 
tected. It would not be pleasant to con- 
template our lot if we never had a State 
organization for no one ran dispute the 
ac\. that our .Society has done much to 
make conditions in Pennsylvania delight- 
ful to the deaf. Why should we want 
to loose a good things? So let us — of 
all us — be Ixxralers for our State organiza- 
tion to which we owe a debt of gratitude 
for all the good things it has brought us. 

Unless some exceptionally favorable 
circumstance turns up it may lie some 
time before the Home can be mafle self- 
supporting, a goal that we originally set 
out to attain. Being such a worthy charity 
it is a goal that must t>e reached eveu if it 
interferes with the Society functioning 
freely in other directions. But it need not 
interfere. All that is needed is more and 
more co-operation. Nothing brings re- 
sults like co-operation I 

Sp>eaking of co-operation — look what it 
did for us in our fight for the right to 
operate a motor vehicle. The spirit of co- 
operation shown by a good many of the 
<leaf in this fight was atltnirable and is to 
be commended. It is inst such interest 
and support that the Society wants and 
nee<ls all the time and is hoping for in 
order to become a powerful organization— 
a jxjwer working f<.»i our goofl in the State 
continually instead of spasmodically. - Had 
the Society l>een powerful when the I/Cgis- 
lature was planning to take from us the 
right to operate a motor vehicle, the 
chances are that the discrimination would 
never have been entered upon the statutes 
of the Curumonweath. " An ounce of 
prevention is worth a pound of cure." 

The automobile is one of the good things 
of life and goes a long way in brightening 
up our otherwise dull existence. Some 
of us owned motor vehicles, but we were 
deprived of the right to operate them. 
Rev. Franklin C. Smielau was appointed 
our special representative to collect funds 
and lead an effort to remove the 
ruling from the statutes or have i' 
through legislative enactment. , 

ably aided by a paid attorney (Harry A. 
Coryell, of Selins Grove, Pa. ), did, will'go 
down in the history of the Society as one 
of its greatest achievmeuts. It is probably 
the time that the deaf of any .State 
have removed such a restriction through 
legislative enactment. 

No other Stale ha/1 such <i drastic rule 
on Us statutes. This was a big step for- 
ward that the Society made; a victory to be 
proud of and enjoyed. 

We owe much to Mr. Smielau. It was a 
great victory that he scored for us. It 
frankly admitted that what he ac- 
'•d very few, if any, won d be will- 
iiig 10 attempt. To wage sucli a fight 
would mean work, running all over the 
Stat** <'■'■■■•'■"■< "■» wherewithal to carry on 
the T the outcotiie, lime 

and ■ , . thinking up schemes to 

pull it through, etc. That is precisely what 
Mr. Smielau went through. 

For many reasons we felt that we had the 
right to operate a motor vehicle, but this 
right, sad to say, amounted to little with- 
out power. It was work and money that 
broil; ' " "]'; right and will k

embarrssing position. Our hearing friends 
who have nothing at stake as far as the 
Home is concerned are contributing more, 
while we ourselves are giving less than 
formerly. Think this over — the Ladies 
Committee support six, friends and rela- 
tives support five, and tl^deaf of the 
State support only nine^What ! Arc 
you going to sit by ^nd twiddle 
yr^ur thumbs now that you see 
more and more help coming to 
this charity tha^i which there is n<me more 
worthy? Don't lay back — but work, work 
—let us do it even if we expect to derive no 
material benefits from it ourselves Doing 
gfjorl is in itself compensation. Also be a 
ct eerful giver. (totI loves a cheerful giver. 
The Home isa splendid institution for the 
proportionally small percentage of rleaf 
people that age and infirmity have render- 
ed helpless and ought to appeal to the 
hearts of all, however iiiucli they may dif- 
fer in their support of other orgatii/.aUons. 

Coal has been one source of worry as 
its price has kept going up stearlily. 
During the past year that one item of ex- 
pense for the Home was J670.00. The 
receipts anrl other expenses are incorporat- 
ed ill the report of the Hoard of Trunstees 
to be submitted by the Treasurer, Mr. 
Lyman Steed. If we had more money we 
crjuld accomodate one or two more in- 
mates. But our aim from now on will be 
to raise enough to build an addition to the 
Home. Mr. I). Ellis Lit is at work on a 
plan to conduct a campaign for the pur- 
pose of raising $5o,ooo.oo for a building 
fund. He will submit those plans to you 
for discussion. 

If every deaf peron of the State could 
be reached for a dollar the results, it is 
believed, would be more fruitful than a 
few collections from the branches. A 
drive for new members, therefore, seems 
necessary. Our plan is to give ten dollars 
in gold as prizes to the three members 
bringing in the most new memliers rluring 
a "Bring-in-a-Member Contest" to start 
now ami end December 30th, 1923; the 
prizes to be divided as follows: First priz.e, 
five dollar in gold ; second and third pri- 
zes—each two dollars and fifty cents in 
?;old This plan, however, is only offered 
or the consideration of the members, some 
of whom may suggest a nior« effective way 
to increase the meiiibership list during the 
se.ssions of this convention. 

Conspicuous in the field of the Society's 
activities for the Home during the past 
year was the effort of the Pittsburgh 
Branch under the mangement of John C. 
Craig to capture the biggest prize in the 
$50(xj.oo pnze contest conduct.*! by the 
Pittsburgh Post-Sun durning the months 
of December, January and February. The 
contest consisted of coUectiiii; laliels, car- 
tons, etc., from purchased food stuffs and 
the prizes ranged from $2000.00 down to 
$50.00. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bardes, Mr. 
Craig, Mr. and Mrs. KImer Havens, Mr. 
and Mrs. F. A. I/citner, Mr. John Friends, 
Mr. Jas. K. Forbes and others worked with 
might and main and the end of the contest 
found the " eighth on the list and S'oo.oo 
realized for the Home. While it is some- 
thing to rejoice over, it must be admitted 
that it was hardly worth the effort as too 
much work was put in for so small a 
return. There are a thourand and one 
other ways in which that amount can be 
raised with half the energy and time given 
to that contest. Many organizations 
composerl of rich heariug people are sure to 
enter such a contest and to compete wich 
them for the first (|2ooo) or second 
($1000) prize wrmld, of course, be out of the 
question even with more concerted effort 
on our pare. That they wf ^.i.i.. 1.. ..>iii 
anything at all under such ' 

the more creditable to Ih 
burgh and we would bo remiss in our 
duty if we did not take this opportunity at 
this time to publicly express our apprecia- 
tion to them. 

It is a t>leasure to announce that another 
source or revenue has been opened to the 
Home in the form of donations from the 
.Sunday School Cl« of the Western 
i'..„,i..„lvanla .School for the Deaf. ft is 
lie amount will average at least 
;, 1 year. This innovation may be the 

means of doing wonders for the Society, 
ami the Home in particular in the future. 
It plants the seeds of charity in the little 
ones. And always, as you know, there is

The mauy friends of Miss Matil- 
da Betzler, of Balumet, Mich., will 
learn with regret of her death which 
occured on the evening of September 
1 2th. At the time of her death she 
was with her sister, Mrs. James 
Henderson, of Detroit, Mich., with 
whom she had l)een visiting the 
last year. For several months she 
was in failing health. The direct 
cause of death was due to complica- 
tion of dieases. She was in her 
fifty-sixth year of age. She enter- 
ed the Michigan State School for 
the Deaf at Flint in 1878, remain- 
ing there as a pupil until 1886. 

She leaves l>esides her direct 
members of her family, six brothers, 
two sisters and many friends. The 
remains were taken to Calumet for 
burial. Mrs. Henderson and Mr. 
Albert Betzler, of Detroit, accoin- 
panloned the remains. 

May she r;st henceforth in

The ladies of the Walnut Hill M.

(Small men figure out that what

aud the one chief hick idea in this

I said before, and I say again, 
and I will probably remark next 
year, picnics are old-fashioned and 
ill-advised. Particnlarly picnics held 
after Labor Day. 

The A. C. D. pinic (Chicago 

Chapter of the National Association 

of the Deaf) held at Polouia. Sep- 
tember «tn, weui »u lUe uu»c. 1 oc 

weather and frat-meeting-night were 
against its euccess. The frat divi- 
sion picnic of the 1 6th, saw an at- 
tendance of 261. Only 261, despite 
tbe iron-clad requirement that every 
member must pay for two tickets, 
whether used or not I Fair auccess. 
The Home Fund picnic of Labor Day 
saw 523 souls — a net profit of $275 
being realized (there were no "do- 
nations," thank heavens.) 

That ends the picnic season of 
1923. A lot of silly little tin-horn 
catcrpilar-feasts, where one grand 
Frdkratbd Picnic would have pull- 
ed like a house afire, but Chicago 
cliques are so "sot in deir ways" 
they can't see it is to their- mutual 
advantage to unite on this Federa- 
tion idea. Sic transit gloria mundi. 
" The Assaryan swept down like a 
wolf upon the fold," describes the 
innudation of the young idea who 
pas.sed through this fair city on the 
17-1 8th, en route to Gallaudet 
College, with a total student cap- 
acity of some 150, for all five no less 
than 180 applicants for admission to 
the "preparatory" course were re- 
ceived, of which 50 were favorably 
acted on. (These figures were given 
us as approximate, aud are therefore 
not guaranteed correct.) Some 
thirty students left the Union station 
on two Peiinsy trains September i8th, 
including two stalwart Illinois preps, 
who seen certain to make the Gal- 
laudet football team the first scrim- 
mage — Louis Massinkoff, Chicago, 
quarter, and W. Johnson, Blooin- 
ington, tackle. 

Rolf Harmsen, the 9 J second sprint- 
er who failed to score iu •the recent 
National A. A. U. games here, went 
back to Gallaudet with the rest of 
his awe-struck following. Big un- 
iversities are always on the lookout 
for great athletes who bob up iu the 
small — fry colleges, and as it seems 
certain Rolf had tempting nibbles 
from secret scurces, his return to 
Gallaudet occasions surprise among 
those who know tire inside of inter- 
collegiatic proselyting tactics — the 
more so as Rolf's hearing is about 
75% normal, he c;»n even telephone 
at times. 

Robey Burns went back to assume 
his week's pre-opening practice on 
the football field, September 4th. 
With him went at least five big 
burly bruisers, who last June had 
decided to " quit school. " How did 
Burns work it ? By booking a Chi- 
cago game with Bowen High School. 
Masculine nature has ever been 
liroud to display its prowess before 
the female of the species, and a 
chance to show the locals jnst what 
sturdy .sons of slaughter they are, 
worked where all tbe moral suasion 
in the world would never have per- 
suaded those full-growa Gloinths of 
the wisdow of an additional schol- 
astic year. " God moves iu a my- 
sterious way." 

Albert Berg was called home to 
Indianajwlis before his scheduled 
Shakespearean reading at the Pas-a- 
Pas club, so a melange of interest- 
ing matters was rendered instead. 
L. Cherry rendered O' Henry's story 
of "Soapy;" Rolf Harmsen — train- 
ing for the A. A. U. meet at that 
time — gave a talk on athletics; Mrs. 
J. Meagher gave some snappy 

Offerlee, of Aurora, gave the most 
interesting address of the evening,

Tlie wife of Johnnie Purdun came 
back after a month in St. Louis, her 
old home, riding in a Ford sedan 
with hearing friends — doing the 350 
miles in two days, Mrs. Purdum 
states, and gives as her authority 

Dr. Cloud himself, that the wealthy 
Atlanta maiden, who was drowned 
when the raft of six dancers upset 
carrying President Cloud down to an 
involuntary baptism— was the deaf 
girl herself. Previous press ac- 
counts had it that the drowned girl 
was one of the five hearing dancers. 

The " sooers" comyosed of all 
ladies of the Sac, who desire to play 
a season of 500, began its regular bi- 
weekly Thursday afternoon meeting 
on the 20th. Any Sac lady desiring

notifying Cbairuian Mrs. Linda 

A guest at the season's initial 
meetingof the 20th, was Mias Mabel 
Johns, of New York, who had arrived 
the day before after touring all over 
Canada in her own car, to spend 
two weeks with Mrs. G, F. Flick. 
This is Miss John's first visit here in 
a year and a half.

Charles Marshall, of the immort-

combination (Goodyear football 
fame), spent a few hours in this 
city on the 9th, en-route to assume 
his new duties as athletic coach at 
the Kansas School — succeeding the 
great Luther Taylor. Marshall had 
ofily one week futher to work ro win 
his five year pin on the Flying 
Squadron. " But what's the use of 
five year pins and F. S. member- 
ship to the deaf— hard work and no 
promotion in sight? Might have 
been different had old F. A. Sieber- 
ling not^boen fired as president of 
Goodyear," he said. So Seinensohn 
is the only remaining world-beater 
of the four greatest Good:^earites to 
play this year. 

John Jacobson. for three years an

Stutsman has a good job there, also. 
The Thomas clan rents an eight-room

September 28, 1923— Activity 
about the grounds of the School for 
Deaf, and in its buildings is again 
prevailing, for the pupils returned, 
most of tliem, Wednesday to resume 
their studies. There will be some 
over five hundred under instruction 
the coming year, and of these 70 to 
SO will be in their first year, a 
greater number than has ever been 
enrolled before at the beginning of 
a school year. 

In the way of improvements few 
or none were made in the buildings 
during vacation, aside of the an- 
nual cleaning up. The real change 
made was moving the Chronide 
office from its old quarters to a 
more commodious one, mentioned 
heretofore. It took all last week 
to transfer the machinery and other 
stuff of the plant a^id reset it. One 

running condition Monday after- 
noon of this week, aud No. 1, Vol. 
56 of the Ohio Chronicle was print 
ed, and mailed to its readers today. 
The office was also equipped with 
some additional materials viz a Bos 
ton wire stitcher, magazine rack for 
six magazines, twelve fonts of 
wooiltype, two fonts of new'fnrni- 
tnre with cabinets, a new type ca- 
binet of 48 drawers with full equip 
nuiut for leads and slugs, brass and 
copper thin sp.vces, and a lot of 
new type, etc. The new type ma 
chine ordered some time ago will be 
here in October. The office will 
then have three machines to work 
with, and the would-l)e printers will 
have ample facilities to learn the 
rudiments of the trade under a 
competent foreman, as they have 
had the past year in the person of 
Mr. J. P. Ryan, lie is enthusiastic 
in giving his best to the boys under 
him, and if they will heed his direc- 
tions and be interested in their 
work they will ,be sure to become 
good printers some day if they 
stick to the trade. 

The new quarters are certainly a 
great improvement over the old 
one. Plenty of room, liglit, airy, 
for there are windows on each side, 
and with the walls and ceiling in 
their new diess of paint, a new 
floor, the Cftront'cZ* office is second 
to none of the printing offices of the 
I. p. f. There was the usual tea 
ohers' meeting Tuesday evening, 
with all but two present, one being 
detained by illness, and tbe other, 
Miss Davis, will retuin in October 
She is taking a course in lip reading 
iu New York City. Supt. Jones 
welcomed them all back to 
their work, and hoped they had 
had a restful vacation, and were 
prepared te resume their work with 
vigor. They would find larger 
classes this year, and some of them 
donbUid, but hoped all would be 
equal to the task, and at the end of 
the the results would be to 
their credit. There is still a short- 
age of teachers in the schools for 
deaf as calls had come for them 
from other schools, and it was diffi- 
cult to supply the vacancies with 
I rained and experienced persons 
The same teachers were assigned to 
opening daj' duties, who performed 
them last year iu assisting the of-- 
fleers with the new pnpils in assisn- 
iug them to their respective divi- 
sions. An unusual incident occurr- 
ed Thursday, after the first day of 
school. Two ladies, sisters, were ap- 
pointed from the eastern part of the 
State as teachers, to supply vaoan- 

will take the full course, aud thus 
secure more honors, and at tbe same 
time benefit herself mentally. 

Mi.s8 Kolma Jansen takes the 
position of sewing teacher, vacated 
by Mrs. Callison, who was married 
in June, while Miss Rachel Gleasou

On Labor Day, over one hundred 
fifty silent Augelenos fiooked out to 
a point in the neigh bhood of La- 
guua Beach to participate in the 
celebration of the annual picnic of 
local Division No. 27, where they 
could enjoy themselves fiee from 
the speaking people. Tbe crowd 
almost doubled to two hundred 
and fifty by the coming-in of other 
aUaPiS-.i^v jftptpr from all parts of 
was confined to his home by a heavy 
cold, thus pteveuting bis going out 
to the picnic. Well, at dawn of 
that day the merry picnickers got 
up before sunrise and excitedly 
prepared to be at the corner of 
Eighth and Los Angeles Streets be- 
fore eight o'clock A.M., where three 
big busses were ready to convey 
them out to the point, about sixty 
miles from here. While riding 
alonfi* tbe highway tbey enjoyed 
the beautiful sights of , Whittier, 
FuUerton, Anaheim aud Santa Ana 
and finally at lunch-time reached 
the place where the picnic was 
held. They spent a very pleasant 
afternoon chatting, sight seeing, 
playing games of all kinds, etc. 
When it was getting dark, all the 
merry crowd got in the busses ready 
to start for their homes. Two of 
th > busses of 70 horse-power each 
got away, leaving the other one of 
30 horsepower behind and arrived 
here several hours ahead of it. The 
thirty horse power buss happened 
to stop or stall somewhere quite far 
from here, aud could not continue. 
So word was immediately sent for 
another buss to take its place. 
Soon after this, tbe unfortunates 
were taken home safely in time for 
the last street oars. 

Despite an unusually large 
number of absentees from the re 
gular monthly business meeting of 
local Division No. 27 last Satnrd.ay 
night, who spied away to pass the

All oinb rooms were in darkness 
last Saturday evening, owing to 
the fact that the looal frat meeting 
was held. Taking it for granted, 
the non frats took advantage of 
this chance by going to the piotnre 
shows or attending parties or pass- 
ing the week end at the beaches. 

It really gives us mneh pleasure 
to say that Los Angeles' population

was married September 18th, to 
Mr, Orieii H. S. Jsmes at the home 
of her sister, Mrs, Leo, H GarAen, 
Hamilton, Ohio, 

George Evans and Calvin Slott- 
ler, both of Cleveland, arrived at 
the school this morning on a visit, 
in tbe latter's automobile. By the 
way, Mr. Slottler is not married as 

current leports have it, becauce the 
would-be bride has nrt reached the 
majority which the law says it must 
be 21, if she wishes to join herself 
matrimonially, according to a re- 
cent opinion handed out by the At- 
torney General of Ohio. 

Mr. Eugene MoCounell was here 
Wednesday, sajing goodliye to 
friends. He left iu the evening for 
Gallaudet College, where he joins 
the ranks of the dignified Seniors, 
We understand Miss Brothers, of 
Cincinnati, a last year's stndenl had 
decided not to return, but changed 
her mind and will be back. The 
right thing to do, and we hope she

In spite of its wonderful climate 
and population aud building, IjOb 
Angeleslis a real sport city, and can 
prove that its chief daily topic is 
about the Firpo and Dempsey 
fight. It is apparently inclined to 
be in favor of Firpo. For instance, 
Jeffries had no skill at all, but 
gieat strength and endurance aud 
kuocked out Fitzsmonns, who 
was the cleverest of all and also 
the most dangerous puncher. 
That is tbe same way that the 
present fighters will do. 

Mrs. J. S. Long was to have gone 
east last Monday, but has just 
prolonged her stay a little longer. 
Her husband is still on his motor 
ing trip eastward and will soon 
arrive in time for the opening of 
ihe Iowa School for the Deaf. 

Last Friday Mr. B. Burress and 
his family came home safely from 
a three weeks' motoring trip up the 
coast. The only place in bis trip 
he was glad to have seen was the 
interesting Yosemlto Valley. 

Mr. and Mrs. S. Gilmore and chil- 
dren returned safely two weeks ago 
after having finished their three 
months' journey up the coast as far 
as British Columbia. Mr. Gilmore 
might l>e requested to give a 
lecture on the trip at one of the 
olabs some evening.

pupils had an exciting time shout- 
ing for Fanwoods, but our team 
lost 8 to 7.

On Friday evening, September 
2l8t, the Episcopal pnpils of this 
Institution went to St, Ann's 
Church. They were glad to see 
Rev. Mr. Kent, whom they had not 
seen for three months. They say 
he now looks iu the best of heatlh. 


Philip Eiohelser, of Worcester, 
Mass., was in New York on Labor 
Day, to visit bis mother, who is 71 
years old Mr. Eichelser's wife and 
his daughter will spend two weeks 
iu New York and Nrw Jersey, to

meet some old-time school friends. 

The annual Reunion of tbe Deaf 
in cork was held on Tuesday, July 
17th after being eight years in

To some of the people the world 
would have been all right if tbe 
Lord had called them in and had 
their opinion before he made it.
